Contest-free frequencies for JOTA

Unfortunately there is a large amateur-radio competition in Germany during the JOTA weekend, called the WAG contest. However, we are pleased that the contest organisers have again arranged for frequencies that are kept free of contest traffic, so we can have a JOTA with minimal interference.

The following frequencies are the contest free zones:

Contest-free zones

These frequencies are also mentioned on the website of the contest organisers. This means that all World Scout Frequencies are in the clear.

Should you encounter contest stations on the above frequencies, please advise them of the contest-free zone. Should the WAG contest station not want to move out of the contest free zone, please take note of its call sign, frequency and date / time and send this to your National JOTA-JOTI Organizer. With this help from you, we can inform the contest organisers accordingly.
